A visionary who thought it robbery not to give unto those who were impoverished. Our father, James Brown the Godfather of soul, was that visionary. We celebrate his legacy in so many ways, in music, perfomance, and live recordings. This foundation's concentration is on his legacy of giving.

The James Brown Family Foundation,,, Inc is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created for charitable and educational purposes. Our father, the founder of the Annual James Brown Turkey and Toy Giveaways, assisted underprivileged children and impoverished families through these and many other projects. It is in accordance with his wishes to continue to bring hope and fulfillment of life to those families in need. This is the main purpose of the foundation organized by the children of James Brown.

The inception of this foundation began in April of 2007. The importance of continuing the annual giveaways was dominant among the hearts of his family. These two events were dearest to Mr. Brown. Only on one occasion Mr. Brown was scheduled to perform in Europe and could not cancel, he then reached out to one whom he had a son-like relationship with, Reverend Al Sharpton to fill in. Since Mr. Brown's passing, Sharpton continues his support to the Brown family and foundation.

On November 19, 2007, James Brown's children held the first annual James Brown Turkey Giveaway after Mr. Brown's passing. This was a day of rememberence but also, a day of helping the needy.

On December 21, 2007, the first Annual James Brown Toy Giveaway after Mr. Brown's passing was held.  It was as if santa had not forgotten those children who needed toys, even though one of his most faithful helpers had gone on, Helper Godfather.

The Foundation will also offer assistance in the development of programs for students of music. Fund raising programs will be developed to assist in music education programs, to assist families in need after disasters and in providing information on health awareness.
